As reported here, 38minutes has entered a new phase - from January onwards, we have been busy recruiting a group of volunteers to look after the site. Although the hosting costs of the site will still be covered by Channel 4's Stuart Cosgrove, the content will be entirely decided by our members.


Back in January, I issued a call for volunteers, and around 30 people came forward offering to help - a healthy sign I think of the creativity and motivation of the media community, even at a time when budgets are stretched and opportunities sparse. Anyway, we won't wallow in that.

 

For the moment, I'd like to introduce you to a few of the people who will be making their mark on 38minutes, and helping you with any ideas, questions or challenges.

 

Nicola More - site editor
I will continue to oversee the site in general, organising regular meetings between the volunteers and working hard to continue the impressive success the site has enjoyed to date. Drop me a line if you would like to volunteer, or for general questions and ideas about the site.

 

 

Helen Jackson - writer/co-ordinator
Many of you told us you found the regular 38minutes newsletter a useful way of getting the most out of the site, so Helen Jackson has kindly agreed to produce this fortnightly update. You will also see Helen blogging on the site. Contact Helen if you have a story for inclusion in the newsletter.

 

 

 

Gavin Robertson - groups co-ordinator
Over the next few weeks, Gavin will be looking at the Groups we have here on 38minutes. The feeling is that at the moment there are too many groups with too few members - a small number of broadly focused industry groups would be more effective. Gavin will assess what we currently have and invite members to run new groups too. Don't worry, we won't do anything with your group without first contacting you for feedback. Contact Gavin if you want to share your views/ideas on the Groups.

 

Steven Wexelstein - design & images

Steven has agreed to provide images for the website homepage and in the months ahead will also look at how we can continue to evolve the design of the site. We eventually hope to add some apps and other social integration tools, but this is time and budget permitting, so please bear with us for now. If you want to help in that area, why not drop Steven a line?

 

 

 

There are many more volunteers whose roles are still to be confirmed - together they will look after the Events page, the Directory and the PR and marketing of the site.

 

I'll post regular updates of any changes. In the meantime, please feel free to leave a comment with any feedback and ideas.
